This rose was purchased a few months ago, bought in July of 2005.
It was originally supposed to be a gigantica but was shipped to me by mistake.
I kept it as they gave it to me for there mistake.
As you can see, he is very bleached out but kept attached and had a good mouth.
He was fed every other day for the first month until his color started to come back and the color especially around his mouth started to regain its red.
Today, January of 2006 he is colored back up, bubbled up and looking good.
He has been moved to my 125 gallon and is very happy there.
So they can recover with good care , lots of food and special care taken to keep the water moving around him . They like to sway in the current so I always keep powerheads stiring the water around them.
You can see the pictures here, they were deleated from photobucket
